In these urgent times, we need courage and new thinking to explore tourism’s potential to regenerate places. The Regeneration Collection, founded by Christiaan Uittenbosch and Peter Heule in Amsterdam, is an exciting international event for Bachelors students in Hospitality, Conservation & Architecture that focuses on regenerative design for hospitality concepts. A core purpose of The Regeneration Collection is to encourage, support, and stimulate young people to become changemakers.
We spoke with Christiaan and the two teams who participated in the 2022 pilot event. The enthusiasm, energy, and fresh ideas these cross-disciplinary teams brought to their design projects is inspiring, in a time when we’re all experimenting and learning together how tourism can support regenerating places and systems.
The universities who bravely jumped into this new and experimental event were Toronto Metropolitan University and NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences. We commend their support of this new project and hope more universities globally will join this exciting and innovative programme for 2023 - Deadline to join is November 25th. See links below for more information about joining.
